Your Child Can Be a Sound Scientist
Inspire your child when science comes to life in The Maritime Aquarium’s summer camp programs, which are firmly grounded in National Education Standards for life-science learning. A summer’s day or week at the Aquarium will help prepare your children to achieve in school next fall. We’ll take them beyond the books on an exciting, hands-on adventure – with fun activities in our marine-science classrooms, in our larger-than-life educational IMAX® movies (in our newly renovated theater) and through our newly refurbished galleries that include more than 21 new exhibits. We’ll show them the fun side of scientific inquiry. Imagine your children doing experiments, handling live crabs and much more! Specific activities, including beach days and field trips, depend upon the theme of the session.
To participate, your child must be the listed age by the start of the program.
Specific activities and visits to certain Aquarium exhibits depend upon the particular theme of each session. Sign up for a few sessions or attend all summer!
Each day runs from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 pm.
Precare from 8:30-9:30 a.m.
Extended care is until 5:30 p.m. A relaxed, informal care service includes enrichment science activities, games, crafts, educational movies and visits to Aquarium exhibits.
If you qualify for the School Lunch Program, you qualify for subsidy for a summer session.
Financial Aid is available for one session per child.
